The USA is home to several of the world's most exciting cities, some truly mind-blowing landscapes, a strong sense of regionalism, a trenchant mythology, more history than the country gives itself credit for and, arguably, some of the most approachable natives in the world. The US was fashioned from an incredibly disparate population who, with little in common apart from a desire to choose their own paths to wealth or heaven, rallied around the ennobling ideals of the Declaration of Independence to forge the richest, most inventive and most powerful country on earth.

Manatees Need Loving,Too

Wed, 18 Nov 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [42]

You Can Run—But You Can't Hide

Sun, 1 Nov 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [49]

Still Got The Right Stuff

Sun, 18 Oct 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [64]

COCOA BEACH HAD THE RIGHT STUFF back in the 60s—but we all had it back then, didn't we?  Cocoa was a company town—and the company was NASA.  It was famous for Astronauts, surfing, beach babes-in-bikinis and as the setting for I ... Read more >

Please, Mr. Postman

WE HAVE BEEN IN FLORIDA FOR A WEEK and yesterday was the first time the weather was good enough to go to the beach.  Connie has been out walking every day, of course, but she is like the Post Office used to be—neither rain, nor snow. . . .... Read more >

It's About Time

Fri, 2 Oct 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [57]

IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE.  A change of scenery.  A change of season.  A change in weather.  And most of all, a change in attitude.  We never thought we would be glad to leave Colorado, but there it is—six Covid-imposed ... Read more >

A Golden Good-Bye

Fri, 25 Sep 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [60]

THE CALENDAR MAY SAY THAT AUTUMN has arrived but, despite the recent dusting of snow, it is still summery here in the Mile High City.  It’s a different story along the Colorado Trail near Kenosha Pass, fifty miles west and another mile higher ... Read more >

All Dressed Up With Nowhere To Go

Fri, 18 Sep 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [56]

Fire and Ice

Tue, 8 Sep 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [59]

IT WAS HARDLY A BLIZZARD BUT ANY SNOW this early in September is unusual, especially after Labor Day temperatures climbed into the 90s.  Although snow is possible any time in the mountains, this is the earliest it has snowed along the Front Range ... Read more >

You Do What You Can

Wed, 2 Sep 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [80]

THE BRITS CALL THEM JABS—vaccinations, flu shots and the like.  So while the country waits for the sometime-in-the-future Covid-19 vaccine, Connie and I got the 2020 model flu shot at Walgreens.  Not only was it covered by Medicare, Walgreens ... Read more >

THE CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED, THE BATTLE-LINES DRAWN and, as Conan Doyle would say, “The game is afoot.”  Perhaps Michael Buffer’s “Let’s get ready to rumble!” is more apt.        ... Read more >
